The New Décor gathers a range of contemporary artists whose work takes the vocabulary of interior design as a point of departure. Reconceptualizing the decoration of our everyday environments through sculpture and installation, these artists explore, and sometimes dismantle, the current attitudes and the social furniture that reveal the public dimensions of our private worlds. In French the word "décor" refers to stage and film sets as well as interior design, and in a similar spirit the works in this volume occupy an arena midway between theater and everyday life. Remapping our relationships to a variety of interior spaces, the artists contributing to this volume are Monica Bonvicini, Martin Boyce, Tom Burr, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Los Carpinteros, Jimmie Durham, Elmgreen & Dragset, Urs Fischer, Gelitin, Fabrice Gygi, Mona Hatoum, Diango Hernández, Yuichi Higashionna, Jim Lambie, Lee Bul, Sarah Lucas, Ernesto Neto, Manfred Pernice, Ugo Rondinone, Doris Salcedo, Jin Shi, Roman Signer, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Rosemarie Trockel, Tatiana Trouvé, Haegue Yang, Nicole Wermers and Franz West.
